Taati Sibolile to Launch Ethical Brand This Weekend

GRADUATE of the Future Excellence Design Institute of South Africa (FEDISA), Namibian Taati Monde Sibolile’s brand draws inspiration from her adoration of architecture and her fascination with the contrasts between hard and soft, form and fluidity.

This ethical, eco-concious brand will be launched on Saturday at an exclusive event at Fresh’n Wild in Eros. Eco-fashion, which can be defined as clothing that takes into account the environment, the health of the consumers and the working conditions of the people in the fashion industry, is fairly new in Namibia and Sibolile is part of a small number of designers who produce ethical fashion.

Romantic and ethereal, yet bold and understated, the Taati Sibolile brand is elegant and sophisticated, maintaining a balance between modern, classic, futuristic, and timeless. The autumnainter collection will comprise both ready-to-wear garments and couture.

The couture line is highly exclusive. Products are made for individual clients and are predominantly handmade. The greatest attention is paid to couture garments, from the pockets to the hems and the buttonholes. No more than 10 to 15 of each design will be created.

The ready-to-wear line is less exclusive than the couture line, and will be available in selected retailers. The brand is gly focused on self-expression, empowering women, individuality, rarity and superior craftsmanship. High quality factories have been sourced to produce the ready-to-wear collections.

What separates the Taati Sibolile brand from other luxury brands is that it offers products that are made of unique, innovative textiles and fabrics. But most importantly, textiles and fabrics produced according to the fair trade principles.

Taati Sibolile products will be handmade by small-scale production factories, allowing for the highest standard quality work. These factories are primarily in the UK, France and Italy.
